  • Maine Black Bears 2019-20: Seeing Red

    A new year is dawning in Orono, and the season has the potential to be a volatile one. What are your projections for our Black Bears this coming year?

            Any optimism out there with the new deputy AD? I'm not yet sure what to make of it other than it could be a good step in improving the proffesionalism of the dept. But admittedly know very little about him.

              Great choice.

              (I thought about "Better Dead Than Red", but there isn't really a distinction there.

                That's a good one, too! (Mr. T was a very under-appreciated thespian; we all know that.)

                Might as well whistle past the graveyard for yet another year and have some fun with it, if that's humanly possible... I suspect that I'll confront the folly of that approach first-hand in Canton this October, but The Warden's hope springs eternal, and she loves the road-blues.

                  7th or 8th place finish in Hockey East with 12-14 win total and out of the Playoffs in 2 straight games...quick exit...and after the season Swayman signs deal to go to Boston to start his career honing his skills in the minors...ECHL to AHL and then any ones guess.

                    If your O/U is 13 wins, I'm taking the under.

                      Either way under 13 means a very long/long season...which I expect...not that I will like it mind you but the recipe is there.

                        Comfortably under in my mind.

                          The real question is who wins more games?

                          Menís Hockey or Football?

                            12 wins. 6th place in Hockey Least. First round sweep by Northeastern or Providence.

                              Iíve got mixed feelings. Iíll start off by saying Iím incredibly disappointed in who Red chose to bring in up front. If Maine could trade Dawe, Holesinsky, and Drobot for Breen, Mayers, and Needham Iíd be very excited about this year.

                              With all that being said, I think there are some things to feel good about. Maine should have itís best goaltending since 2004. Red has done a good job finding dmen and Iím confident even though this yearís group is inexperienced they will be solid. Maine should be able to have a really good first line with Fossier and Tralmaks.

                              After that first line though I donít feel great about getting a lot of scoring from the other three. Maine has a pretty easy schedule and assuming Maine throws away a few games and is underwhelming in others I still think they should finish somewhere around 14 wins and finish around fifth in Hockey East. Itíd be great if this was the year Maine performed above expectations, but that isnít what weíve see during Redís time. I foolishly bought tickets for opening night against Providence and am starting to get excited for the season against my better judgment.
